Tailor-made IT infrastructure: ensure reliable operation of your software solutions
Articles and interesting facts

How to maximize efficiency, minimize risk and ensure availability and secure storage of information? IT infrastructure is a fundamental pillar for the efficient functioning of systems in the enterprise. In this article you will learn why to use IT infrastructure, how to ensure its reliable operation and on which cloud to store data.

What is IT infrastructure?

IT infrastructure is a set of hardware and software products, network resources and other solutions that are designed to provide all users with a powerful, secure and easy-to-use environment tailored to the needs of the business. IT infrastructure is therefore used to ensure the reliable and smooth operation of key systems in the business.


What does IT infrastructure include?

IT infrastructure includes all the technology elements needed to operate and support IT services and applications in an organisation:  

  • servers, networks, computers, 
  • cloud storage,
  • operating and database systems,
  • security equipment, 
  • resource management systems, 
  • testing facilities and frameworks, 
  • and more. 

 The network infrastructure includes all the elements needed for communication and data transfer within the organization, including cabling, wireless networks, routers, switches and other network devices. Cloud services provide access to computing resources and storage, and elements such as firewalls, antiviruses, data encryption, monitoring systems and other security tools must also be included to ensure the security of the IT environment. 

Why use IT infrastructure?

A good IT infrastructure is the foundation for the efficient functioning of an organisation, providing the necessary resources and support for day-to-day operations, communication and collaboration. A well-designed and managed IT infrastructure can help maximize productivity, minimize risk and ensure the availability and secure storage of information. 

Every business needs a different IT infrastructure, depending on the size, complexity and level of security of the information system. If the IT infrastructure is not well designed or does not meet the company's needs, it can cause downtime, slow data transfers, limited capacity, and other problems that prevent the organization from taking full advantage of modern technology and operating efficiently. 

Which IT infrastructure to choose?

IT infrastructure can be supplied to you as: 

  1. Infrastructure built on software and hardware components, 
  2. Or as a cloud infrastructure that is either based on private cloud technologies, or uses public cloud providers, or combines both approaches (hybrid cloud).  

It is the second point, cloud computing, that represents the modern approach of providing infrastructure such as servers, databases, storage, networks, software and analytical tools. The public cloud is used by a large number of clients at the same time and you as a user only pay for the virtual space you actually use. At the same time, you don't have to invest in hardware or find experts to keep everything running. Your cloud service provider will take care of everything, but you have to trust them with your data. 

With a private cloud, you essentially create or rent your own cloud centre accessible via the internet or a private data network, so only you have access to your data. This option is more expensive because you pay for the costs associated with acquisition, operation and maintenance. You may also end up paying unnecessarily for too much data space, or find that it is too small and needs to be expanded. 

These problems are solved by hybrid cloud, which combines the use of public and private cloud storage at the same time. This allows your company to primarily use the private cloud and lease the public cloud if you need more computing power or data capacity. 

With a hybrid cloud, you can achieve significant savings by reducing the cost of acquiring and maintaining software and hardware, and you don't have to buy licenses for each employee or device separately. At the same time, only you will have access to sensitive data when you store it in your private cloud, while common applications are placed in the public cloud.

What forms the basis of a successful and modern IT infrastructure?

The foundation of a successful and modern IT infrastructure lies in several important elements that enable reliable operation, scalability and security of systems. Let's take a look at these key factors together: 

1. Flexibility and scalability

Flexibility and scalability of IT infrastructure opens the way to adjust the system to the changing needs of the company (add or remove resources such as computing power, network capacity or storage). This is made possible by cloud services, for example, which offer fast and efficient scalability without the need for business interruption or significant hardware investment. 

2. Reliability and availability

To ensure the reliability and availability of the IT infrastructure, redundant systems must be implemented and operations continuously monitored and tested to identify potential weaknesses and subsequently remedy them. This may mean using multiple data centres, backing up data and establishing recovery plans.  

Redundancy means that if one part of the infrastructure fails, the system automatically switches to another part, minimising any disruption to operations. This keeps the IT infrastructure running uninterrupted without having to wait for repairs.

3. Cloud technologies

We consider the advantages of cloud technologies to be, for example, the reduced need to invest in in-house hardware and enhanced options for remote working. A properly functioning IT infrastructure will connect you to public, private or hybrid clouds, all of which should be done with a focus on security, performance and efficiency. 

4. Safety

Security of IT infrastructure is an important element in times of frequent cyber threats. A modern IT infrastructure includes not only physical and network protection, but also data management and compliance with legal and regulatory standards, such as data encryption or updating security protocols.  

5. Automation and management

The IT infrastructure should be able to automate repetitive tasks and provide effective management and monitoring through the right tools and technologies. For example, artificial intelligence and machine learning open up new innovative possibilities and can lead to better data analysis and optimisation of decision-making processes.
